K.S. Malevich is a vivid representative of surrealism, so undeveloped in Russia at that time. His paintings are striking in their originality, characters are incompatible, and sometimes their colors are gloomy.

The work “Cow and violin” is one of the most striking and unusual paintings. Painted on a wooden plank. At that time, the artist was in need and could not afford to buy an expensive canvas. Then he used as a canvas a part of a wooden shelf, on which there were even holes for fastening.

The work was done in the colors characteristic of the painter. The dark background speaks of the artist’s sadness, his gloomy mood. The idea of ​​the work was served by the standards on which the art of that time was based. Music was to be created according to the rules, literature was required to meet certain standards, and painting was evaluated based on the given parameters of the work.

The artist propagandized freedom in everything; he easily combined dissimilar objects. Malevich opposed standards and rules, he believed that for art there are no laws and formulas. In his painting, he ridiculed the use of clichés.

The master jokingly suggests combining a cow and music, visually demonstrating how it will look literally. A few green elements in the picture gives optimism not only to work, but also shows the artist’s hope for development and a desire to live. He did not tolerate certainty in art and its clear separation. This is not to say that the picture is made in the style of cubism. This work is perhaps one of the most realistic in the creative life of Malevich.

The picture is filled with deep philosophical meaning. The artist allows you to look from the side not only at standards, but also at your own worldview. Perhaps this painting will change the view not only on art, but also on life. In each work of Malevich, everyone sees their hidden meaning.
